LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 13, 2020 Not surprisingly, that football that sometimes grants second chances could have brought together in January the reunion between the two, when the Hispanics were looking forward and had 20 million, just what Benfica asked for RdT. But Espanyol had anticipated, convincing him and the Lisbon club since mid-December, so those of Lopetegui ended up opting for Youssef En Nesyri for that same amount. Lopetegui numbers are not right. Not now, not last season. Until the dismissal of the coach at the head of Real Madrid, after the tenth day, only Karim Benzema had more goals (four) than the three of Thomas He had already harvested in the Rayo, where he would end up with 14 goals, the same ones that all the white team wore when the club turned to Santiago Solari to relieve him.“Benzema is Benzema and I am Raúl de Tomás, we are completely different“, the last season the perico striker resolved, fleeing (rather, showing his tiredness) from comparisons. Until August 24, 2018, very close to the end of the summer market, no Raúl de Tomás left Real Madrid’s discipline. His nth transfer, but not any one. And not because it would be the last one before being transferred a year later to Benfica, since he did not know it. But because the white coach did count on him. It was Julen Lopetegui.“I could have been there, Lopetegui wanted me to stay“, revealed the striker in January 2019. And added:”But I didn’t want my function to be just sitting all year“And hence he agreed to return to Rayo Vallecano, with which unlike Real Madrid he did make his debut in Primera. Now the player and coach faces will be seen, but with the equipment changed. Tomás, counting goals for matches at Espanyol. And Lopetegui, surfing a crisis of results in Seville.

He has four goals in as many days, as many as the ‘pichichi’ of his country, Luuk de Jong, throughout the season. For its part, In Nesyri has a loner both in Seville, yes, last day against Celta. And without forgetting that even in Leganés he stabbed Espanyol on December 22, with the 2-0 that meant the dismissal of Pablo Machín, a Sevilla coach a year ago.
